Service Overview

Alexander Youth Network provides behavioral health treatment for children and young adults in North Carolina. Headquartered in Charlotte, with service locations in the central, western and Southern Piedmont regions of North Carolina, Alexander has combined a variety of treatment programs into a complete Service Array. The behavioral health treatment programs within the service array complement each other to help children transition to the appropriate program as they begin to heal. As a child improves, we can continue to offer customized treatment for each child and stability within the service array at Alexander.

Without a Service Array

Children are moved repeatedly to get the treatment they need. Relationships fragment and treatment becomes difficult.


With a Service Array

Relationships have a chance to stay intact, positive changes take root and children learn new patterns and behaviors. Children improve faster with lasting results.
